Inside the Cave

Josh Marshall has the report of a Democratic House staffer on the state of negotiations on the Iraq war funding bill. It's a good read and gives a flavor of just how spineless careful the Democrats are being.

I know it's easy to sit at my keyboard command center and be bold. But I would think that a simple look at the polls would give Dems more backbone. I particularly agree with one point made by the staffer: the Dems have not done a good enough job laying the stalemate at Bush's doorstep. He vetoed a funding bill. He's refusing to negotiate. Every single Democrat interviewed for anything should be singing that song with a megaphone.

Bottom line is that it appears touch and go at this point. Not a bad time to let Congresscritters know how you feel ..... again.
